Nurturing Talent Mentoring Scheme

Mentoring is a powerful tool and as a mentor you can make a big difference.

The Leeds mentoring scheme links up professionals from bioscience and other industries to act as mentors to students in the Faculty of Biological Sciences.

We have developed the mentoring scheme to provide students with the opportunity to enhance their employability, expand their professional networks and increase their confidence. Find out more.

Tap into our talent

Can you provide a student work placement or one-off project within your organisation? It’s an ideal opportunity if you are looking for new ideas, impartial analysis or help and they’re an important part of our students’ learning experience.

Find out more about collaborating with the Faculty of Biological Sciences and working with students.

Do you have a vacancy to advertise? Post work placements, internships and graduate jobs directly to our students and alumni via our Employability Officer Mr Tim Goodall.

The University also manages a number of exclusive internship programmes for Leeds students with companies through the Leeds Internship Programme.
